NAILING YOUR ELEVATOR PITCH

Updated: Jan 31

As a budding nutritionist or herbalist, marketing is one of the biggest struggles we hear about. This is because we were trained in our craft and that craft isn’t marketing our services.


But if you intend on owning your own clinical practice, marketing is something that you need to learn in order to be successful. Developing and refining your elevator pitch is a great first step.


You need an elevator pitch because you’ll use it anytime you introduce yourself. It’s a great way to open the door to talk about nutrition or herbalism and how you help people heal. There are some basic parts of an elevator pitch:

  • Who you are

  • What you do

  • How you help people in a unique way

The uniqueness is the important piece. This highlights how you stand out amongst the crowd. And health and wellness is a very crowded market today!


Something that’s important to remember is that you always need to use the words that your audience would use. For instance, you wouldn’t say “achieve health freedom” because most clients don’t use those words. But you might instead say “stop feeling exhausted all the time” because that’s more in line with the words that your audience likely will use.
